Thank you for choosing to submit your book proposal to Mithra Publishing.
Mithra specialises in crime, romantic and erotic fiction, self-help and biographies. During 2012 and 2013 we will be rolling out a catalogue of new titles from both new and established authors. All of our books are published as paperbacks or ebooks for reading devices such as the iPad, iPhone, Kindle, Nook and Android tablets.
To save entering into email correspondence or lengthy telephone calls regarding proposals and the publishing process we’ve listed the most frequently asked questions about the Mithra submission process, along with our answers. We hope this information is most helpful to you.
Are you currently accepting unsolicited manuscripts?
Yes, we accept submissions from writers and their agents.
I want to send Mithra Publishing some material. How should I go about doing this?
We prefer manuscripts by email. In the first instance, please send only the first three chapters of your book with a covering letter telling us a little bit about yourself. Please try to keep the first three chapters to a maximum of 10,000 words. Our email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
For further information, you may email the editorial department at email@example.com.
What if my manuscript is unfinished?
We only accept three chapters from completed manuscripts. If the work is complete, we will have a full picture of what the author intends to create from start to finish.
What if I live outside the UK?
We accept manuscripts from all over the world. Manuscripts must be in English.
What we need from you:
Send three chapters from your book with a covering letter.
Your three chapters (and the full manuscript) should be proof read as much as possible before sending. Please make sure you save your work in MS Word format.
What we will do after receiving your chapters:
We will read your material carefully. If the manuscript interests us and is suitably written, we will email or call with comments and questions that may allow us to go to the next step.
If the manuscript does not fit our publishing program, we will let you know and explain why.
What types of books are we in the market for?
That’s the easy one. Mithra publishes books in the thriller and fiction genres and we also love how-to books and autobiographies. Mithra Publishing publishes both print and ebooks. We pay standard royalty and aim to publish an average of two months after acceptance.
I’d like you to convert my manuscript into ebook formats so that I own the book and can sell it myself
We offer an ebook conversion process that is quick and affordable. We can turn your manuscript into a format read by Kindles, iPad and most Google readers for just £250 ($350). The process takes approximately two weeks. To find out more about this service, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
